announced at the BroadSoft Connections 2009 Users' Conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., that the companies have extended their joint solution capabilities through additional TANDBERG product interoperability and applications. Now, it is even easier for service providers to deliver integrated video and voice solutions to businesses of any size through a Software as a Service model.
With BroadSoft's Device Management functionality, the configuration and provisioning of TANDBERG video products is now seamlessly integrated with BroadWorks business applications. The TANDBERG E20 can now be deployed by service providers using the same management and provisioning processes they use today for traditional VoIP phones and devices. This single, unified service activation process for both audio and video aspects of unified communications solutions speeds and eases the integration process for service providers and customers. In addition, BroadSoft is tightly integrated with TANDBERG Multipoint Control Units, which enable hosted multipoint video conferencing, so service providers can deliver video conferencing as a cloud service to businesses.
The enhanced TANDBERG/BroadSoft solution makes it easy for service providers to create customized solutions for all their customers, regardless of size. Organizations that may have lacked the resources to deploy on-premise video communications solutions enterprise-wide can now capitalize on the benefits of video unified communications through the TANDBERG/BroadSoft solution. A streamlined deployment process coupled with the advanced features of TANDBERG's easy-to-use products provides an all-in-one video/audio solution that eliminates the need for a separate office phone.
